Solaris Prtdiag Command

The prtdiag can be used on Solaris systems to display system diagnostic information.

/usr/sbin/prtdiag [-v] [-l]

The following options are supported:

-l       Log output. If failures or errors exist in the
         system, output this information to syslogd(1M) only.

-v       Verbose mode. Displays the time of the most  recent
         AC  Power  failure,  and  the  most recent hardware
         fatal  error  information,  and   (if   applicable)
         environmental  status.  The  hardware  fatal  error
         information is useful to repair  and  manufacturing
         for detailed diagnostics of FRUs.

The following exit values are returned:

0        No failures or errors are detected in the system.

1        Failures or errors are detected in the system.

If you are running Solaris 10 on an x86-based PC, the prtdiag command does not work on some earlier releases of Solaris 10. I have two PCs running Solaris 10. I installed the 3/05 release of Solaris 10 on the first and the 6/06 release of Solaris 10 on the second. On the first system I see "prtdiag: not implemented on i86pc" when I try to run prtdiag. On the system with the 6/06 release, prtdiag works and shows me the information below. You can determine which release you are using by looking at the contents of the /etc/release file.
